Subject: Predictable Meta Spew From The Left. Ho Hum.
Protest is an important and integral part of our American experience and our nation's history. It's inseparable from our very founding - protesting political and economic caprice by the English crown.
It does help, like it helped our founding fathers, to do your homework, and bring something new to the table. They did, and this hasn’t.
The hackneyed canard that America somehow brought 9/11 or incurred the enmity of Islam because of corporate “greed” or “consumerism” is not only utterly wrong, it’s a bore.
Protest all you want, and art is a part of protest. This isn’t even interesting protest and at best, it’s cut n’ paste art that might get a C+ in a middle school art class.
Islam has been on a war footing, a global war footing since the latter part of the 8th century. This isn’t opinion, conjecture, a “point of view”, it’s bald fact. Since earliest days of Mohammed’s time when the first great schism within Islam begot the ancient blood feud between Sunni and Shia, Islam has been at war either with it’s self – as it is today – or with the world – as it is today.
War and political conquest through the instrument of “religion” have been as interwoven as the fibres in a war banner. In fact, modern Jihadi’s renewed the war effort in the late 1920’s, ( yes – the 1920’a – that how long this has been going on ), and the imams of that era are the founders of the modern Islamic hate movement. And guess what campers? They’d didn’t hate us first! They hated their own leaders – the caliphs, the sultans, the pashas, they warred against their “decadent” leaders. As they has been since day one.
We’re Johnny-Come-Lately’s to the show but even our engagement began under the Jefferson administration and really came to a head under Teddy Roosevelt. Didn’t know that? Do your homework. Look it up.
Islam may well hate America, “the great satan”. If you but take a minute to examine the history of Islam, we’re just another bozo on the bus load of people Islam has hated since 700 A.D.
This little so called 9/11 protest, like Islamic Jihad, is nothing more than the usual Left wing hate that is common place among, well, the Left. This is left Wing agit prop using 9/11 and Islamic Jihad and a vehicle for, um, hate. And much ,much, more than offensive, it’s a bore. Ho hum.

Good propaganda is a lie. Great propaganda is the truth. The Bush administration coerced the US to go to war with Iraq; a country that had nothing to do with 9-11. Freedom of speech means nothing if you are unwilling to accept alternate points of view. Modern media is so powerful and so pervasive that one's unpopular views may be missed or ignored and in the end ridiculed. All police states know this simple fact.

Subject: What ever...
Haters always hate. What ever the topic, the hater will always think from his/her/it's prospective of hate. This isn't Brain Surgery. So it is no suprise to me that Socialists, Communists, Marxists, and other puppet client people of the old regimes hate America. Most authoritarians hate everything that isn't like them. Islamic Fascists who are Sunni were not the first people to hate America's Coco-Cola and Apple pie and add that to the crazy notion they can somehow put out a propaganda film with the notion they did not perform a horrific act of aggression. You've wasted yourself for hate and what good does it do you? You will live in your little failed state with hate in your soul. We in the West will keep on building our lives and move on.
Subject: The Easter Bunny IS real
Elvis joined a combo with GG Allin and Karen Carpenter. Everyone knows that.
Wicked cut-up mix. Especially like the world leader montage.
Subject: I know who did it
911 was a direct result of one man. The boogieman and wonder woman spawned a devil child raised in the US and trained by the Buddhists of Iceland. This devil had a best friend Fred, he caused all the trouble. GREAT FILM!
Subject: 9/11 is a hoax
Most people now believe that Israel had something to do with 9/11. There is more documented evidence at limplicates Israeli involvement that Muslim involvement.

Subject: it's shit

I don't know hwat the other reviewers are talking about; there is no explicit position on any conspiracy either pro or anti-government. I thought it was well cut and hectic. Plus you can't beat Spooky!

Lee Harvey Oswald was a marine rifleman.
Crop circles are made with rope and wood.
Ghosts never seem to actually do anything.
The Easter bunny is not real.
I will stop because by now your reality has been shattered in a million peaces. I cannot believe a server in San Francisco would host such things.

i don't think the first two reviewers really "got it." a little less knee-jerking, folks!
i admit it was a bit obtuse (though artfully composed) but i think it was pretty clear this wasn't meant to be propaganda.
Same old, same old
